Philippians 3:17-21

From this passage, we continue to focus on the fact that gluttony is proof that, in certain aspects of our lives, we "mind earthly things" more than we mind heavenly things. It is interesting how that, immediately after a Sunday church (a heavenly thing), many of us make a beeline to a fine restaurant or to the house for a "Sunday dinner" or a "Sunday meal" (an earthly thing). I recall, when I was a child, the mothers would put the food on before we left for church so that it would be ready by the time we got back. Sometimes, they even had it done the night before so that all they had to do was warm it up on Sunday afternoon. We church people were serious about our Sunday meal, and, looking at the physique of many in the church, one wonders if we are more serious about that than we are about Sunday services.
